  1. MS Office @ mentions to sync and notify users

    @ mention comments, tags and notifications section in Microsoft Office apps, should also integrate with Box interface and notifications. Great achievement with co-authoring, however, it is highly inconvenient to have to comment on Box preview, and then open the file to work/edit. Ideally users need to be able to @ mention and tag other colleagues/users within the MS application, which should notify other users to take action on the required document. Otherwise it creates duplication of work/inefficiencies in the process.

  2. Date and Time of uploading file on BOX

    Hi! I was faced with the problem of file date uploading on display on BOX.

    I know that usually, BOX shows "Today" or "Yesterday" if the file was uploaded to BOX today or yesterday. It's clear, but, I need to see the exact date displayed with numbers. For example, I want to see that the file was uploaded to BOX "18 of May, 2022" instead of "Today".

    Moreover, I even can't see the time when the file was uploaded to BOX. I work with the client in different time zones (the difference is 10 hrs) and sometimes it is really…

  3. Box Sign - Email Settings - Ability to receive email notifications when a signer has viewed /opened the document.

    Would like the ability be notified via email when someone has viewed a signature request instead of when all signers have signed.

  4. I would like the ability to hide malicious content in BoxShield.

    If malicious content is uploaded to Box, we would like the ability to hide the content as well as suppress downloads.
    If possible, we would like the content to be hidden automatically.
    *For example, if infected with ransomware, we would like to hide the infected file and the file with the threatening message.

    This is because we want to take action on the administrator's side so as not to worry users.

  5. Ability to manually update a Box Drive version (menu option)

    I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app so that I can manually update when the latest version of BoxDrive is released.

    Currently, Box Edit and Box Drive are designed to automatically update their versions, but depending on the user, the timing of implementation may be delayed or there may be cases where the version is not automatically updated.
    In order to deal with this, we have to uninstall and reinstall the tool, which is very inconvenient.
    Therefore, I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app…

  6. Comments should copy over when files are copied from one folder to another

    Not sure why this has changed, however, when copying files from one folder to another (inside a parent folder) it would be great if the comments would also copy over. They used to, up until mid-2021. For example, I have files I share for approval in a working project, that I copy into an ASSETS folder after approval

  7. Requests regarding Box For Teams V2

    I would like to use the Box For Teams V2 integration, but the following functions are bottlenecks and cannot be used.

    Therefore, I want to be able to turn off only the following functions in the tenant settings.
     
     ・Automatic creation of Box folders for teams/channels
     ・Automatic mapping of user permissions

    In most cases, Japanese companies use a controlled system in which the administrator owns the items.

    However, if folders are automatically created or permissions are automatically attached with the Box For Teams V2 integration, control cannot be taken, so we requested this.

    (日本語)

    そのため、テナント設定で下記機能のみをOFFに出来るようにして欲しい。

  8. Ability to include the name of the triggered file in the subject line when sending Relay notifications

    We would like to be able to include the name of the triggered file in the subject line when sending Relay notifications.
    We want to be able to easily check which file the notification is for when the user who received the notification receives the notification email.
    When a user receives a notification email, I want to be able to easily check which file it is for.

  9. Enable ability to customize the notification that is triggered during a Box Relay workflow

    Enable ability to customize the notification that is triggered during a Box Relay workflow.

    E.g. if an approval task is approved, I want to notify whoever submitted the content for approval AND potentially other relevant parties that their submission was approved, but I also want to potentially customize the notification (e.g. it was approved for x, y, and z reasons).

    E.g. if an approval task is denied, I want to notify whoever submitted the content for approval AND potentially other relevant parties that their submission was denied, but I also want to potentially customize the notification (e.g. it was denied…

  10. Box API for creating a File Request

  12. Signature logs should also be able to be specified as a trigger condition for Box Relay

    Box Relay and Box Sign integration has been released, allowing for automation on signed files.
    The current specifications do not allow automated processing targeting signature logs.
    In our case, we would like to move not only the signed file but also the signature log to an arbitrary folder.
    Therefore, we request that the signature log can also be specified as a trigger condition.

    <署名ログもBox Relayのトリガー条件として指定できるようにしてほしい>
    Box RelayとBox Signの連携がリリースされ、署名されたファイルに対する自動化を行うことができるようになりましたが、
    署名ログを対象とした自動化処理が現在の仕様では行うことが出来ません。
    私たちが利用したいケースでは、署名したファイルだけでなく、署名ログも任意のフォルダに移動したいと考えております。
    そのため、署名ログもトリガー条件として指定できるようにリクエストします。

  13. Send Error Message when it is wrong email address in Box Sign request

    Currently in Box Sign, when you input an email address that doesn't exist, it doesn't give any error and in the interface, it is successfully "sent".

    If there is a feature to let the user know that there is an error because it could not send the sign request, it would be very useful.

    The background of this need is that if there is a typo in an email address and the sender doesn't notice it, they would just assume that the sign request email was sent and there is no way to know that the receiver never received it.

  14. Better sorting by relevance with search terms

    When I search for an exact file name, to find all copies of that file within a folder structure, the "See All Results" page does not put all the "hits" of that exact file name at the top of the list. I have to scroll down through many other files with partial hits in the name to find all copies. Why would it not sort by exact file names first, then partial file name matches, then contents ... ?

  16. View Owner/Creator of Files in Box Drive

    We would like the ability to display accurate information about the Owner/creator of files within Box Drive for Windows. The Owner column in Windows was used prior to our migration to Box to show who originally created the file for a folder all in a single glance. Although Box.com shows the upload history of individual files, it's a manual process of viewing each file-- a pain point-- compared to the table view of File Explorer with the Owner column displaying. Currently, within Box Drive/File Explorer, the Owner column is empty. This would be useful for the users to know who…

  17. Ability to easily view notifications

    Tasks, etc. are notified in the notification field, but I would like to see it improved so that it is easier to see.
    For example, carousel or feed format.
    I would like the notifications to be structured in such a way that I can always see them on the screen and notice them without having to click on them.

  18. Ability to sort bookmarks with other files (e.g., alphabetically)

    Please allow links/bookmarks within folders to be sorted (e.g., alphabetically) and not stuck to the end of the list. This would make it easier to find items that are dated; I, for example, have all my items dated, and it's super inconvenient to have the bookmarks located separately/out of order within my folders.

  19. Preview support for .MXF files

    MXF is an industry-standard file format for video and audio. MXF files contain information about the media inside (metadata). This file type is commonly used by marketing teams for video content. Requesting previewing support on Box Web App for .MXF files to allow easy external collaboration on this content.

  20. Allow Relay notifications to include manually entered email addresses instead of limiting the list to existing collaborators

    Currently the Relay system will only allow notifications to be sent to existing collaborators or users. There should be a way to allow any manually entered email address to be a notification destination. This would allow for group or shared email accounts to be a notification destination. Group email addresses or shared email accounts may not exist as specific collaborators but still could be useful for notifications.
